COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snowshoe Grizzly Brown Ale is the darkest beer available at the brewery, with a distinct, roasted malt character, dark color and medium hop finish. It pours out a deep brown color with ruby highlights, the head Bunyanesque in size, semi-creamy in texture. The aroma is of lightly toasted grain, caramel, and black walnut sweetness. Grizzly Brown Ale is brewed with five different malts giving it a rich roasted flavor and a smooth finish.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from Raley’s in Vacaville, CA. Pours a dark brown with a hint of red. Roasty malt flavor with a hint of carmel. The palate was little of on this one and fell apart on the tongue. A little thin bodied for my taste. Average brew.

DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 28, 2013
14 ounce sample on tap at The Burger Saloon in Woodland, CA. The aroma has lightly sweet cocoa hints with very mild roasted malts. Light grassiness is also present. Mostly transparent mahogany body with a medium, strong, light tan head. Starts with some sweet cocoa flavors before an acetic, vinegary infected flavor takes over in the middle. Finishes very roasted. The infection is problematic.

toml219 (285) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Serving type: bottle Apearance- A amber dark brown with a quick disappearing tan head, and some sticky lacing. Aroma- Roasted malt, sweet caramel smell that is almost overpowering and coffee T/P- Taste is like the smell roasted malt chocolate and coffee. The coffee defiantly comes out in the taste. Overall- This is not bad; there are defiantly better browns out there. It is not well balances the coffee is a bit strong. If it was a little better balanced it would be outstanding as it is it is good and drinkable, but not out standing.

Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pour had no head on a dark brown body. The aroma was mild brown sugar. Fine but not much there. The taste had a mild sweet malt balanced out with mild bitter. Crisp with low to moderate carbonation. It is a pretty mellow beer, which made it an easy drinker.
